Four Preventable Causes of Trauma-Related Death
Benjamin Sensenbach, FP-C, TP-C / University of Rochester Medical Center
Many of the most important prehospital interventions have been born in combat and implemented by civilian EMS systems. A review of the military data from the early years of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has shown that members of the armed forces died from what may have been preventable causes. There are important implications for the EMS community as BLS interventions are the key to successful trauma care as we have seen in Boston, Aurora and the Pulse nightclub. This lecture will provide a brief overview of the data and put emphasis on the physical skills that will save lives.

1:45 – 1:55 PM

1:55pm – 2:45pm
All Hazards Response
Deputy Brooke Payne, AAS, EMT / Steuben County Sheriff’s Department
Increasingly, public safety agencies are becoming an integral part of our EMS system. Deputy Payne will identify and discuss current topics related to law and EMS, such as active shooter response, clandestine laboratories, issues of custody, chain of command and evidence preservation.  

2:45pm – 2:55pm

2:55pm – 4:15 pm
Triage and Medical Incident Command
Ralph Wilcox, CCEMT-P / Lifenet of New York/AirMethods
Nationwide and locally, incidents which stress our EMS systems are increasing.  Agencies often cite training of Triage & Medical Incident command as a concern.  Join Ralph and staff as we review triage and present a simple, low-cost, yet effective triage drill to implement in your next training.
